Electron vs Pug: What are the differences?
Electron can be classified as a tool in the "Cross-Platform Desktop Development" category, while Pug is grouped under "Templating Languages & Extensions".
"Easy to make rich cross platform desktop applications" is the primary reason why developers consider Electron over the competitors, whereas "Elegant html" was stated as the key factor in picking Pug.
Electron and Pug are both open source tools. Electron with 74.9K GitHub stars and 9.8K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Pug with 18.4K GitHub stars and 1.9K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Electron has a broader approval, being mentioned in 221 company stacks & 374 developers stacks; compared to Pug, which is listed in 174 company stacks and 119 developer stacks.

The Slack desktop app was originally written us the MacGap framework, which used Apple’s WebView to host web content inside of a native app frame. As this approach continued to present product limitations, Slack decided to migrate the desktop app to Electron. Electron is a platform that combines the rendering engine from Chromium and the Node.js runtime and module system. The desktop app is written as a modern ES6 + async/await React application.
For the desktop app, Slack takes a hybrid approach, wherein some of the assets ship as part of the app, but most of their assets and code are loaded remotely.
Slack's new desktop application was launched for macOS. It was built using Electron for a faster, frameless look with a host of background improvements for a superior Slack experience. Instead of adopting a complete-in-box approach taken by other apps, Slack prefers a hybrid approach where some of the assets are loaded as part of the app, while others are made available remotely. Slack's original desktop app was written using the MacGap v1 framework using WebView to host web content within the native app frame. But it was difficult to upgrade with new features only available to Apple's WKWebView and moving to this view called for a total application rewrite.
Electron brings together Chromium's rendering engine with the Node.js runtime and module system. The new desktop app is now based on an ES6 + async/await React application is currently being moved gradually to TypeScript. Electron functions on Chromium's multi-process model, with each Slack team signed into a separate process and memory space. It also helps prevent remote content to directly access desktop features using a feature called WebView Element which creates a fresh Chromium renderer process and assigns rendering of content for its hosting renderer. Additional security can be ensured by preventing Node.js modules from leaking into the API surface and watching out for APIs with file paths. Communication between processes on Electron is carried out via electron-remote, a pared-down, zippy version of Electron's remote module, which makes implementing the web apps UI much easier.
Our application began as an HTML5 browser game, however we decided to leverage certain native parts of desktop applications by wrapping our client code into Electron. This also allowed us to not have to worry about compatibility across all the various browsers.
Our Web Applications are served on our Desktops by Electron. This allows us to have native apps running on our Workstations without having too many Browser Tabs open at the same time.
We use Jade when writing HTML, which is much easier to read and maintain. We compile it to HTML before deploying it though, and don't use Jade's client-side rendering features.
We use Jade for constructing our modular UI. We also rely on Jade interpolation to pass reactive and static values from our Express server.
front-end 수업 때 들은 jade 입니다. html을 효과적으로 다룰 수 있고로 열고 닫을때 혼돈이 없어 좋아합니다. 현재 프로젝트에 gulp와 함께 붙이려는 계획을 갖고 있지만, 아직 연습이 더 필요하다고 생각됩니다.
